45th Annual SCI Show Opens in Vegas Today

45th Annual SCI Show Opens in Vegas Today

What’s going on in Las Vegas this week, you ask? Two topics are the talk of the town: Making a friendly wager on Super Bowl Sunday and attending what I call quite the pre-game event: the SCI Hunters’ Convention at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center here, Feb. 1-4.

For just a few reasons to attend the SCI show, let me give you 800,000-plus, starting with: 1,200 exhibitors representing 33 nations and 6 continents; 34 hunting-related product categories; 110 taxidermist displays; 67 gunmakers; 1,150 live and silent auction items up for grabs; hundreds of outfitters who cater just to hunting and/or fishing excursions; dozens of hunting seminars to help you build your skills and, last but not least: 800,000-plus square feet of things to do and see here.

As for that 800,000-plus number, football fans will click into the fact that that square footage spans about 15 NFL Super Bowl fields, considering each field is, including end zones.

I personally don’t need thousands of reasons to be here. I’m good with just having the experience of attending and seeing 20,000-plus all-American hunters join me on the show floor. Of course, with the “by the numbers” I listed, the SCI show is much more than a mere show: It’s a world-class sporting event!
